3 tbsp
pork tenderloins, cut into bite-size chunks
garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup
1/3 cup
cider vinegar
1/4 cup
low-sodium tamari, or soy sauce
4 tsp
green onions, sliced diagonally
8 cups
sliced napa cabbage
1/4 tsp
jasmine rice, optional


  • HEAT a large non-stick frying pan over high. Add 2 tbsp canola oil, then half of the pork tenderloin chunks. Cook until pork is dark golden on all sides, 2 to 3 min. Transfer to a medium bowl. Repeat with remaining pork.
  • ADD 2 minced garlic cloves, bay leaves, water, apple-cider vinegar,  low-sodium tamari (or soy sauce) and brown sugar to pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is slightly thickened, about 3 min. Remove and discard bay leaves. Add pork and cook until cooked through, about 2 more min. Stir in green onions then transfer to a bowl or platter.
  • RETURN pan to stovetop over high. Add 1 tbsp canola oil, 2 minced garlic cloves, napa cabbage and salt.
  • COOK, stirring often, until tender-crisp, about 2 min. Serve alongside Pork Adobo, with jasmine rice if desired.
